Disabled Access

Barnsley Academy is a fully inclusive school. We interview all applicants for positions regardless of disability as long as they meet the minimum criteria for the post.

Our facilities have full wheelchair and disabled access, and disabled toilets inside the Academy fully implements the Disability discrimination Act and the Disability equality duty.

According to the Disability discrimination Act 1995, as amended by the Special Educational Needs and Disability Act 2001, a responsible body discriminates against a disabled person in education if (section 28B(1)):

(a) for a reason which relates to his disability, it treats him less favourably than it treats or would treat others to whom that reason does not or would not apply; and
(b) it cannot show that the treatment in question is justified.

The Disability Equality Duty

In 2006, the “disability equality duty” came into force, as introduced by the Disability Discrimination Act 2005. This puts a general duty on public authorities – including schools and further and higher education institutions – to promote disability equality. Regulations published under the Act put a specific duty on public authorities to prepare and publish a disability equality scheme which gives details of how disability equality is being promoted. Schools must have regard to the need to:

  1. promote equality of opportunity between disabled and other people;
  2. eliminate discrimination and harassment, promote positive attitudes to disabled people;
  3. encourage participation by disabled people in public life; and
  4. take steps to meet disabled people’s needs, even if this requires more favourable treatment.


Please note that Barnsley Academy operates CCTV throughout the Academy to main a safe and secure environment of our staff, students and visitors. Please see our CCTV policy for further information.
